Following on from the piece - http://soundimageplus.blogspot.com/2011/07/more-nikon-d7000-high-resolution-multi.html?utm_source=BP_recent  I spent yesterday creating high-resolution multi-image shots with my Olympus E-PL1.

I have, of course, been doing this for some time now, but its been a while since I've done it with m4/3.

Yesterday I picked up my non-polarised but extremely dark sunglasses and was able to use both the screen and the EVF on the E-PL1 without constantly having to keep taking off and putting the glasses back on.

Interestingly, the opticians was opposite my local Jessops store and I popped in to do a sneaky test. One thing I did discover was that the screens on the Samsung NX series don't have a problem with polarised lenses. The AMOLED screen is visible no matter what angle you view it from, just like mobile phones, which is where the technology comes from. However the EVF still caused problems.

The glasses worked very well. They are very large and basically cut out all extraneous sunlight and I was very pleased at how well they work. The ongoing problems of a shortsighted, four-eyed photographer!! I even worked with the Voigtlander 75mm f/2.5 Heliar, and the manual focusing required with the VF-2 was much easier than it has been of late.

For the most part I used the 14-42mm kit zoom, which despite its low price and even lower reputation I like very much. From my experience its a much better lens than its given credit for, and the stitched 60-80MB 20-27MP files I created with it were sharp and excellent quality.

All this and Cadel Evans looking like he's finally won the Tour de France! (Apologies if you come from Luxembourg!) A good day.
